So are you rooting for your home state?  Hoping for an upset?  Perhaps just interested in the party that surrounds the tug itself?

This weekend Leclaire, Iowa and Port Byron, Illinois celebrate Tugfest with carnival rides, games, food and live music.

The main event happens at 12:30 with the only tug of war spanning the mighty Mississippi.

Saturday 3 on the Tree and the Dirty Water Boys perform in Port Byron while The Binjers are in Leclaire.
